Mapping the Trash Tier Skill Cancelled in Japan Questions
Howdy all. Nukemind here. So I learned that Mapping was cancelled in Japan circa 5 or 6 months ago. Book 8 will be the last. I was just curious if anyone new if the author was going to put up a conclusion on the WN (as I understand it's behind the LN by a bit) or anything. I know it wasn't a groundbreaking or innovative series but it was definitely fun, and I rather liked the characters I would like to know how everything ended especially with the next translation (book 8) being the last novel in JPN before cancellation.
No, the WN ends exactly the same way as the LN. The author simply decided to end it there and started working on a different series (at least based on what he wrote in V8's afterword).
@terabyte Ah gotcha ty. I was under the impression overlap cancelled it without a conclusion. I’ve already preordered 8 on bookwalker but as I’m not a premium member I didn’t get to read the afterword. Well at least it was the authors decision. Still a shame would have loved to see who won- Miya, Roslia, or Erin (or all three as seems to be popular these days). Hopefully whatever the author publishes next will be translated. As I said it wasn’t groundbreaking but the prose was good and the series enjoyable.
Well, we don't have any proof that it wasn't cancelled, either. So it may very well be that Overlap cancelled it and the autor was unwilling to continue working on dead series and moved on to something that can sell (kinda similar to The Magic in this Other World is too Far Behind, also from Overlap).
There is a small ray of hope, though, as on twitter author mentioned that it is over "for the time being". So the continuation is not entirely impossible.
@wellwisher ah I see I truly appreciate it. Saying for the time being does give that hope. Overlap seems to cancel a lot of series after the usual 3 or 5 books has ended. At least with LDM they gave him a 3 book notice.

Hello there, Avatarian here.
To be honest, I did enjoy book 8
....so it kind of hurt that the series (most likely) ends here. Still, kudos to the author for making it to 8 LN on his debut work. Personally, I had a blast reading this series.
